My Students

My students enjoy coming to class to see friends and favorite staff members! They're excited to learn and share their own experiences with things we learn about. To help them get the best of their education, we're in need of a few things. These students come from hard backgrounds, low income/ SES, and a lot of my students classify as ELL's. I try my best to support them in any and all areas as best I can. To do this, I also need a little help and support!

My Project

Being a first year teacher is tough, and you can help out by supplying some much needed materials! Organizers will help us keep all our materials in good shape throughout the year, and help us keep track of the most important things. Whiteboards have SO many useful purposes across all subjects! My walls are pretty empty. I hope to build a board for our daily objectives, calendar, etc... I also hope to dedicate a board to writing and other ELA topics. Writing is a such an important skill to have. These skills carry over into everyday life, every subject, and a career someday. I appreciate all the donations to help get my room started!
